Most of my creative energy this week has gone into first preparing for our 4-year-old friends to visit, and then entertaining them when they’re here. And with whatever energy I have had left, I’ve been blowing my nose and sneezing. Oh, joy.
I rarely get sick these days, so I suppose I was due to catch a cold, but the timing really couldn’t be worse.
Fall is in full swing, as you can see by the colors in this week’s mosaic.
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for my Project 365, plus some everyday-life images I posted on Instagram during the previous week. (FYI, my daily photo project this year has changing monthly themes. For September it was mugs: a month of my morning coffee and other delicious drinks. October is Fall [of course!])
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
365: Mugs 27/30 – Today’s coffee is in a mason jar, so I can try out the jar cozy I crocheted on a whim last night.
365: Mugs 28/30 – Aidan dragged me to the gym this morning, and then we negated our hard work with croissants 🙂
365: Mugs 29/30 – Enjoying a quiet cuppa before my busy day with the long to-do list begins.
Instagram: My Friend Mandy (and my sister’s Friends Jenny and Becky) freed from their plastic bag prison and wearing dresses my mother made them 30+ years ago. #vintage #dolls #fisherprice
365: Mugs 30/30 – Ok, maybe I’ve been wrong all of these years. Girly stuff isn’t so bad. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a doll to dress up.
365: Fall 1/31 – I had some help with today’s Fall photo shoot.
Instagram: This box was supposed to be a distraction for them, but I seem to have ended up doing most of the coloring 😉
365: Fall 2/31 – Well, it is definitely pumpkin season at Trader Joe’s. And this is just the stuff we brought home with us. I’m going back for more when I don’t have to fit two 4-year-olds in the cart 🙂
Instagram: Just one more hour until the big boys get home. Not that I’m counting #yesiam
365: Fall 3/31 – My fall napkins.
Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Flickr.
I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
